Food find: Oasis Lounge

My sisters really like fish. Me, not so much. I like sushi, but good sushi should never smell like fish.

Anyhow, on our travels this weekend, my sisters decided they wanted a perch dinner. Oasis came highly recommended. Apparently during lent, the wait for a table could take you three hours. Luckily, lent was over with and we only waited 10 to 15 minutes, just long enough to grab a tall draft for $2.50. The same beer here would run me at least $8. Ick, Chicago prices.

On to the food. I got the classic cheeseburger, we got an order of onion rings to share and everyone else got the perch. The portions were huge, just ridiculous. There was a school of fish on my sisters' plates.

The onion rings were the first thing that came out. They were super crispy and delicious. My favorite part was that the onion didn't come out during the first bite, because the rest of it is just fried stuff and kind of icky.

The fish looked crispy and delicious. The whole family raved. My burger was a bit on the rare side, but hey, I lived to tell the tale, so I think I'm just dandy.

MMmmmm, fried things.
